      UPDATED: MESSAGE BOARDS CLOSING AFTER DRAFT   03/08/2017

      After careful consideration, we have decided that we will sunset our message boards after this year's NFL Draft. Since we opened our boards a decade ago, the digital landscape has greatly evolved. While we understand there remains a smaller group of highly-engaged fans who participate in conversation in our forums, a significant amount of the dialogue about our team and our games has migrated away to other social media platforms over the past several years. Our message boards will remain up and running through Friday, May 5th, and will be removed on May 6th. We recognize that this change may upset avid members of our community. However, we look to utilize our time and resources to focus on how we can best connect with our fans across an array of digital/social outlets. If you are not already engaging us and other members of the Ravens Flock on our Facebook page, Instagram account, through Twitter or Snapchat, we invite you to follow us on those channels and continue to participate in our social communities. In addition, the commenting feature on our website articles will remain intact. Members will be able to continue using their boards account to log in and share their thoughts at the bottom of every news story. We’d like to thank all the Flock members and our moderators who have brought thoughtful conversation to this space and made our community great for the last 10 years. Ravens Social Media Hub »

@Cville-Raven

Everyone betray me, I'm fed up with this world.

They betrayed me, they didn't keep their promise, they tricked me, and I don't care anymore

Oh my gawd.   Top ten ?
DIFFICULT.

Only #1 is in order the rest are just as they come to mind.

1) Signs.  I LOVE the sub story.  "There are no coincidences" Faith matters to me and this movie really speaks a lot about where my faith is.  
Oh, if you think this movie is about aliens, you are mistaken.

2) American History X A difficult movie to watch, but so powerful.  It really is a "must watch"

3) Planes Trains and Automobiles rock solid absolute classic. 

4) 500 Days of Summer.  More so for personal reasons, but it simply is a fantastic movie. 

5) Who Framed Roger Rabbit.  I can watch it over and over and over 

6) The Green Mile.  just fantastic on every level 

7) Happy Accidents  Stars Marisa Torme.  This is SUCH a fantastic movie.  It comes across as a chick flick for si-fi chicks ( sorta ) but it is SO WELL DONE !!!
With this movie the less you know about it going in the better. 

8) Devil I am a big fan of Shyamalan after more than a few disappointing movies Devil was a great movie about grace and redemption.

9) Forest Gump.  no secret why this is on here.  If it is not on most peoples top ten it easily is on just about everyone's top 25. 

10) Edward Scissorhands. this is a move that should be a template for what it takes to make a great movie.

11) Napoleon Dynamite This movie is SO rewatchable. 

12) Crash another movie with a compelling message.

Honorable mentions. Office space, A Few Good Men, The Green Mile, Pleasantville, Sixth Sense, The Village, Star Wars, Kick "rear end",  Blue Like Jazz, Airplane, The Naked Gun, Spaceballs, The Passion, As Good As It Gets, Goodwill Hunting, Pay If Forward, Silence of the Lambs, and The Princess Bride.

Seen the previews and think it's supposed to be a comedy horror.  Probably going to check it out.

Judging by the director, comedy horror would be a fit.

The Girl on the Train is a must watch.   At first I wasnt that Interested but as it kept going it just sucked me in.   It kind of reminded me of Gone Girl

"The Swiss Army Man "

So very very strange. 

It is about a man stranded on an island when a dead body  ( played by Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore and the two go on an amazing adventure to get back home.

Personally I thought that film was great though. It's probably the definition of "something else", but it has a great soundtrack and manages to make you think even though it incorporates a lot of fart jokes. Which is totally weird. One of my favourite movies of last year in the end...

Swiss Army Man. Somehow I deleted the quotation... I haven't seen The Girl on the Train so far, although it's on my list.

You're the first person I've ever seen that had 'The Girl on the Train' and must watch in the same sentence.  And I thought I enjoyed it more than most.

I really enjoy psychological thrillers.  At first i was pretty bored but it kept getting deeper and deeper.  maybe its because i didnt expected anything even good.

Top 10s are tough cause they definitely vary on mood.  If I was stuck on an island and could only take 10 I guess I'd rock with these.

 

In no specific order:

Nightmare on Elm Street

Shawshank 

Who Framed Roger Rabbit 

Scott Pilgrim vs the World

Dark Knight

Dawn of the dead or a cabin in the Woods.

Back to the Future

Alien

Inception or Shutter Island

The Thing

 

 

Yea... I cheated.  

 

 

 

Anyone seen Split?  If so, how was it?

Yes.  LOVED it.  Disclaimer I am a big fan of Shyamalan, so I am admittedly bias. That said I am not a homer.  I can easily admit he has had quite a few stinkers. 

I would say it is worth seeing.  It doesn't have to be big screen though.
